Earl the Bard

Hurdy-gurdist, story teller, professional noise-maker


Hail and well met, friends!

I am Earl the Bard, the merry-making minstrel, the troubadour of troublemakers, the gleeman that'll fill you with glee, man!

As a bard, I enjoy singing songs and telling tales of heroes, of love, and of life. Though I play an assortment of musical instruments, my favorite by far is the Hurdy Gurdy. You can learn more and hear samples over in the About section, if you would like.

If you have any questions at all, or you would like to speak about soliciting my professional services, then please feel free to contact me!

Bardic Skills

I'm not just a pretty face, ya know! Here are some of the other entertaining things I've been known to do from time to time!

From cheerful tunes of mirth to ancient dirges about trolls, I have a song for almost any occasion! I sing to my own accompaniment as well as a cappella.

I play an assortment of instruments including the Hurdy-Gurdy, Ukulele, Pipe and Tabor, and the Percussion Bones. Oh! And ankle bells!

Be it a concept album or even live theatre, I enjoy creating stirring and emotional aural soundscapes, as well as customized compositions.

I also enjoy writing ballads of brave heroes and their noble deeds, especially if those deeds include braving 100 degree weather for a box of donuts.

Life as a bard is never boring, and I have many tales to tell. Some stories are better delivered in prose allowing better flow through the common voice.

Though not a main feature of my stage performance, I juggle for fun when not playing an instrument to keep my hands busy. It's fun for me as well as for you!
